Poisonous weeds in the Church!

(adapted from Mary Winslow's, "Heaven Opened")

It is high time we awoke out of sleep, and aim to live
more for eternity, to live more for God, and to God.

With this world and its opinions and maxims,
we, as believers, have nothing to do, for they
are contrary to God's Word.

And as it respects mere professing Christians,
we had better keep away from them, for they are
as poisonous weeds in the Church, infecting,
in some way or other, all around them, and
must, and will be, rooted out in due time.

These are the very bane of the Church!

May God, in mercy, lessen the number daily!
